There is a deep relationship between the making of clothing, textile work and women hence the desicion to work with a fiber medium. The images in the animation have been sewn or drawn with the sewing machine. The process itself is time consuming, mimicking to a certain extent the working hours of many of these women who work in the industry. In the drawings, color has only been given to cloth and garments to make them the focus of the scenes. The characters in the animation have very simple or no features at all. This is to represent a mass of homogenized people who work for the industry; they are not seen as individuals or human beings; they are seen as a continuous source of work or a commodity that can be mishandled and replaced.

A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing
2010
The story “A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing” starts by recounting the journey of individual garments, from the growth and production and gathering of cotton and other raw materials, through the production of textiles and the making of individual pieces of clothing in garment factories to the shipping and selling of the products in developed nations. Each individual garment has its own history, and contrary to common belief, it has a long journey, even though at times the quality of certain pieces or brands of clothing do not look like they have had a long path.
